lior: any hints about what you were doing that might have caused it to happen?

Have you seen it more than once?

I can only think of one thing: I had two tabs open on Twitter, since I was following two hashtags. Every time I clicked on the link at the top of the Twitter page to load the new tweets (there were a lot of tweets, sometimes over 100), the Tor browser locked up. In other words, it said "not responding" in the title bar and I could not use any feature of the browser. After the browser started to respond again, I noticed this error message in the log. I can't think of anything else that might have caused it, and it hasn't happened since then.

Finally admitting that 0.3.??? was a euphemism for Tor: unspecified all along.
